Paper woven mats can be useful if you only need them for a short time and you don't want to worry about your mats getting damaged. Examples for their use could be a kids birthday party or craft class. These paper mats can easily be thrown away or used again if they remain undamaged. Or, several mats can be attached together to make a larger mat. Though the example in this article is all one color and green, they can be done with multiple colors and customized to taste.
All of the supplies used in this craft project can be found at local stores in San Diego such as dollar stores, Michael's, Wal Mart, or any other type of store that sells paper, arts and crafts, or office supplies.

Expect the each mat to take approximately an hour.
